Sometimes it's really hard with fringe. In this picture it was 1am or 130am, and I was just PRAYING that when I flipped the thing inside out, my work would be perfect.
Here we go ...
In other news, Ron and I put together a brunch for my mom--his mom is coming over for dinner later today. The brunch was pretty easy--I baked a raspberry cake the night before, and Ron made a spinach and potato frittata. The cake was actually Ina's recipe for peach cake, but I substituted frozen raspberries for the peaches:
It's really, really easy and perfect with coffee. I can't wait for actual peaches and raspberries to be in season so I can use fresh instead of frozen.
Pearl hid upstairs most of the morning and ignored everybody, but Penny hung out with us the whole morning. Of course the highlight of her day was fresh wrapping paper to sleep and play in. (It's sort of like giving a giant box to a little kid.)
And then she slept on my lap for nearly an hour because she was so wiped out--her nap schedule had been wrecked for the entire day. (Bear in mind: my cats sleep on average 20-22 hours per day.) She's really not that different from a three-year-old.
All in all, I would say that it was a perfect Mother's Day morning. Happy Mother's Day, mom! I love you!
